prerequisites for graduate school.

their skills in the commercial art industry. Students, however, are encouraged 
to complete a four-year degree after earning the A.S. degree at Oakwood

during their senior year with a minimum 70 percent passing grade.

education and industry. Other opportunities include graduate school, 
journalism, law, library science, public relations, and teaching. Artists find 
employment in a variety of professions in thousands of organizations around 
the world.

languages; and it provides remedial courses in reading, writing, and English

Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies 

The interdisciplinary studies degree is designed to give the student who 
desires a broad program of studies a choice in his/her academic experience. 
This degree is especially relevant to the adult learner whose career context 
calls for a variety of knowledge and skills in his/her changing environment. 

The interdisciplinary studies degree will have the same general education 
requirements as for other B.A. degrees. Instead of a major, three disciplines of 
21 hours each are required. The Initial three disciplines are business, 
communication and religion.
